All about rodent infestations.
The festive season is right around the corner and we are all getting ready for it. Planning trips and calculating the presents budget, thinking of new recipes and a million other things.
We also prepare ourselves and our homes for the ice, the snow and the freezing temperatures. But are we the only ones that are getting locked in and ready?
Of course not! Every living thing is stashing food, adding a layer of fat and looking for a warm and cosy place to occupy through the rough winter season.
Pests are not any different. Although some insects die off in the winter (like wasps, flies and mosquitoes), others are finding a way to survive and we often provide them with the proper conditions.
